I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1:8, KJV).
These powerful words were uttered by our glorified Lord when John had a vision of Him in the spirit. He declares that He is the beginning and the ending. Please note He did not say anything along the lines of, “I am the One who begins everything.” He said I am the beginning and the ending. This is one of those powerful “I AM” statements of our God.
The apostle Paul further describes the wonders of our Lord in Colossians 1:17-18, which says “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning.” Again, he states very clearly that Christ is not just the One who began all things but He is the beginning itself. Furthermore, the first part of the statement gives us one reason for this amazing grammatical construction. It says, “By Him, all things consist.” Creation finds its existence and sustenance in God. He upholds all things, every single thing that was made in heaven and on earth by the power of His Word (Hebrews 1:2).
As you begin any season of time or endeavor in life, remember that your Savior is not only there with you but the very beginning of everything has its existence in Him. As you remain close to the One who is the beginning, be sure the ending will also be in Him.
Take a moment to ponder on Revelation 1:8 above. Then declare the entire verse. There is power is uttering the Word of God.
APPLY THE WORD
Whenever you are starting anything in life, such as a new year, new career, new business, etc., remember that your Lord is the beginning. Rest in His wisdom and power to see you through to the end.
Thank and praise the Lord for the confidence He instills in us as we rest upon Him.
